Podesta and the President Continue to Talk About UFOs

We haven’t actually made direct contact with aliens yet. But when we do I’ll let you know.

That’s President Obama’s response to a question about the possible existence of aliens asked of him by a 6-year-old child prodigy during a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The comment has prompted an expert to analyze it. Meanwhile, everyone’s favorite political UFO proponent, John Podesta, appeared on TV in Las Vegas to again promise for more disclosure if his boss gets elected president. Are they telling the truth? Should we be getting ready for some explosive news?

President Obama’s comment caught the ear of Ben Hansen, former host of Syfy’s Fact of Faked: The Paranormal Files, who has analyzed similar statements by Obama and former President Bill Clinton. This time, Hansen points out that the president was forceful in his tone – implying that he’s in the position to know - but vague in his answer. The little girl had no chance to ask any follow-up questions: “What do you mean by ‘direct’? Does ‘…when we do' mean you know you’re going to meet them before you leave office?”

Unlike his former boss, John Podesta had a lot to say in Las Vegas about what will happen if he gets back to the White House with Hillary Clinton.

It's a little bit of a cause of mine, which is, people really want to know what the government knows, and there are still classified files that could be declassified.

Podesta has always implied that he knows there are files about UFOs and aliens and he regrets not opening the dusty boxes when he had a chance before. He says he won’t pass up the opportunity again. Why?

… so that people have their legitimate questions answered. More attention and more discussion about unexplained aerial phenomena can happen without people who are in public life, who are serious about this, being ridiculed.

Was Podesta just pandering to Nevada voters who are concerned about what’s really going on at Area 51 or is he serious about opening the secret files to all Americans? Are those files one of the things Obama is leaving for the next president, no matter which party wins?

And this is just A-to-B.
